. looks like we may go into january without a deal. >> stephen moore saying we're going off the cliff. we've got new details on the plan, the president's scaled-down proposal. here's what's on the table. extend the current tax rates for 98% of americans, incomes up to $250,000. extend unemployment benefits, that's an important point. extending the alternative minimum tax patch. prevents cuts in payments to doctors who treatment medicare payments. would this scaled-down proposal save us from economic disaster? >> we've done a tremendous amount of damage to ourselves, embarrassing ourselves around the world. assuring investors we're as risky as standard & poor's thought we were when they reduced our credit rating. it would be great if we could avoid sharp credit risks. restoring the unemployment insurance benefits is really important because you have millions of people who are depending on this for income. and they're going to spend that money if you give it to them and that's what the economy needs. >> absolutely right. >> wait, hold on. let me say something. that outlines that deal that y

solution. this comment by west harvard's superintendent tom moore. i come from a family of hunters. i'll ask for christmas after hearing wayne lapierre blame officials for the shooting is for my brothers to resign from the nra. they may have to go back to the drawing board to convince people it seeks meaningful change. i stepped on my statement a bit. what he said was he was speaking for the majority of gun owners and what they think. it was not true. we have data. views on gun control measures have changed. this is questions now on whether people support specific kinlds of gun control that wayne lapierre was asked about. the question of whether or not we should ban high capacity clips. 59% support, 38% oppose. on the question of banning semiautomatic handguns, 52% to ban them, 44% no. to ban handguns except to law enforcement, his position hold, 27 support it. it's not true that most americans oppose gun control. >> let's say we should call the nra the aka 47%. he doesn't speak for gun owners who are responsible. there's something interesting. if you notice when progressives and libe

? joining me now, senior economics writer or for "the wall street journal" steve moore. steve, thanks for making it in today. >> hi, jamie. we're having a white christmas in chicago. so it is a lot of fun. jamie: i know chicago, burr. the numbers are also pretty chilling for retailers who do what percentage of their business during the holiday season? >> you know, those months of november and december are absolutely crucial, jamie, for the retailers. about 40 to all their business all year is done in those two holiday months. so it's, not very good news that the retail numbers came in, you called them lackluster. and that's probably putting it charitiably. this was the worst year since 2008. it is actually, surprising, jamie, because if you look at some other indicators, consumer confidence had actually bumped up a little bit in the last couple months. we have, i wouldn't read too much into this because other indicators of the economy are looking up right now. jamie: so do you think it's an anomaly that it isn't going up? is it an indication if we go over the fiscal cliff there's conc
